    Nice. Better buy it before then then, otherwise the price will rise.
    @Ikki buy it now while it's cheaper, then get updated to full version for free.

    I recommend you buy it before it's full, it's still 75% of the full price.

    Great.

    I suppose they're going to charge for significant updates or expansion packs after that date. Since I purchased it during Alpha, I have nothing to worry about, though.

    probably not, they don't seem like the kind of company do do that.

    I'm so pirating the shit out of the full game....though I most likely will never play it.

    Nice. I wonder if the Lightning Bolts actually exist and aren't just some random particle effect. I want there to be a risk of a bolt striking a tree and setting fire to stuff.

    It was, but this is the "full" release, it is currently in beta stages. Beta 1.4 to be exact.



    My PC can't run it either, though it is a small netbook with like 1GB of RAM and not optimized for gaming...

    Cool. I hope they can release it (and fix all the bugs) by their goal date.

    Also, I = Alpha purchase = sweet free updates and expansions for me. [​IMG]

    It's not an official release though, it's a beta release.

    XD epic
    And I recently learned you can improve how the game runs by setting it to high priority in task manager.
